Description:

An event planner is, most simply, someone who organizes an event. Any time people meet for a purpose, whether it is for a wedding, a conference, or the grand opening of a new store, someone is needed to supervise all the details to guarantee the event happens and that it is a success.  Our Event Planning Professional program can help you become that person. 
Event Planning & Management Event planners need professional caliber information that explains everything from how to decorate, to the use of technology, and everything in between. In this course you will learn that information and much more. It is through planned events that we remember our shared history, our friends, family, and community.
We include information on greener events, corporate social responsibility, international best practices, and the expanding event field. You will also learn how technology, including the use of social media, may be harnessed to improve the financial, environmental, and other strategic outcomes of a special event.

An entrepreneur is someone who has recognized an opportunity to start a business that other people may not have noticed.
